Monsters behind doors
offices and board rooms running well
executives and presidents they will not tell
no one knows until the media swells
with the news of secret hells

Monsters behind doors
houses built and wealth displayed
but the heart of it is completely dismayed
a house a home does not make
itís what you bring to it not what you take
the families inside are absolutely ignored
their lives are unfulfilled and bored
they should have been fully explored

Monsters behind doors
schools guiding and teaching all day long
but the children inside donít feel strong
and they donít feel they belong
instead of seeing and hearing their immediate needs
like filling their hunger bellies so that they can think to succeed
so learning wonít be ignored
so learning can be explored

Monsters behind doors
hospitals treat and heal from babies to the old
but run out of medical insurance youíll soon be told
this is not a charity so go on your way
wait in a line somewhere you donít have to pay
the poor they canít afford
so they get blasted and silently ignored

Monsters behind doors
churches have spokesman that preach
and teach the word
some keep hurting children
while still claiming they love the Lord
they keep fighting among each other
hiding behind the mighty sword
there is no justice here
and none should be poured

Monsters behind doors
someone ought to take a look
itís just not found in a story
or in a Stephen Kingís book
darkness magnifies in places that
are often so near and so dear
all we have to do is take our blinders off
and see what truly appears

Monsters are everywhere
behind our own doors
faces staring back up at us
from the mirrors in our own cracked floors
Monsters behind doors
